Henry Charles Takes on Religious Affairs

Henry Charles Usher

As part of the cabinet reshuffle that was announced by the Briceño administration earlier today, Public Service Minister Henry Charles Usher has been assigned responsibility for Religious Affairs.  The portfolio expansion will allow for Usher, a devout Catholic, to liaise with the Belize Council of Churches.


Henry Charles Usher, Minister of Public Service

“For some time now I have been advocating for a liaison between the government and the Council of Churches.  I keep asking the prime minister, month after month, can we get a liaison officer between cabinet and the Council of Churches.  So, I guess this was a way of getting me off of his back in this request, but certainly I welcome the challenge, I welcome the opportunity of merging the public service with the Christian fundamental principles upon which our country is based.  The Constitution of Belize is very clear.  It advocates the supremacy of God, we’re a country based on the Supremacy of God and we must make sure that our Christian principles are adhered to, and what better way than to merge them with public service in the way we govern our country.”
